These worm gear screw jacks are very precision and reliability, it can meet all the necessary safety, cost-efficiency, and strength mandates of the application. High strength bronze worm gear can be used, the payloads from 0.5T to 100T . A complete of 11 sizes are available, each in a journeying nut version and a basic version.

Trapezoidal spindle (self-locking) and Ball Screw spindle (high efficiency) version
Design option: Regular, Anti-rotation, Anti-backlash or Security nut
Standard and customized end fittings, mounting options, and drive shaft
Worm Equipment Screw Jack systems are ruggedly designed and produced in standard versions with load managing capacities from 1/4 ton to 100 tons. They might be used individually or in multiple plans. There are no “standard” travel lengths and all Worm Gear Screw Jack systems are designed to specification.
The jack housings are made of ductile iron and proportioned to support the rated capacity of the unit. MJ, 1/4 ton, and 1/2 ton models have aluminium housings.
Each Worm Gear Screw Jack incorporates an alloy steel worm which drives a higher strength bronze worm gear (drive sleeve). The worm shaft is supported on antifriction tapered roller bearings with exterior seals provided to prevent loss of lubrication (sealed radial bearings on the MJ, 1/4 , 1/2, and 1 ton products). The drive Worm Gear Jack sleeve is backed on antifriction tapered roller or ball thrust bearings. Rotation of the drive sleeve causes the lifting screw to translate or rotate, depending upon jack configuration.
The Inch and Metric Worm Gear Machine Screw Jacks incorporate an alloy or stainless worm which drives a high strength bronze worm gear (drive sleeve). The worm shaft is supported on anti-friction tapered roller bearings with external seals provided to avoid loss of lubrication. The drive sleeve is usually supported on anti-friction tapered roller or ball thrust bearings. Rotation of the drive sleeve causes the thread lifting screw to translate or rotate, depending upon jack configuration.
The threads are precision formed, typically using Class 2-C (Centralizing) tolerances. Jack lift shaft lead tolerance is approximately ±0.004″ per foot.
